“Beautiful”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

This facility is compact and welcoming. There is an excellent collection of galleries presenting permanent and temporary exhibitions. There is also a very nice small theater where lectures, plays and othe entertainments are presented.

“A cultural treasure”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

While it does not have the resources of a major metropolitan museum, the permanent collection of Mexican sculpture and European prints is superb. The highlight of the FAM is the monthly special exhibits which cover a wide range of contemporary art which are well curated and beautifully displayed.

“Good, but nothing spectacular...”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

This is a very small local modern art museum. The collection is nice but does not represent a very broad range of styles.

All and all a good museum, but I wish it had more community support so it could expand.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

Excellently curated and solidly placed right on the California contemporary arts front. I can't wait to return. We saw Emmy Lou Packard: Diego, Frida and Me, several other shows including an impressive collection of Meso American artifacts, contemporary paintings, sculpture, and a respectable sculpture garden. And the expertly constructed gowns from Trashique were are marvelous surprise. When is my next trip?
